WOULD NOT BUY

James Antoine, Amazon
8 July 2015
  • Summary: Received this as a gift close the end of 2013. I finally decide to open the box nearly a year and a half later. As soon as I use it, it refuses to stay connected to the wifi and the mouse pad sometimes clicks on something I don't click and vise versa.

... three years now and overall its hasn't been that bad of a laptop

Jacob Weiner, Amazon
30 June 2015
  • Summary: Well I have had this laptop for just under three years now and overall its hasn't been that bad of a laptop. I have an i5 3230 with 8gb RAM and I use an extended display. Those, other than the 1tb drive and cheap price, are the only things that I am happy with.

Disappointed

23 June 2015
  • Summary: I would love to give this a higher review but I just cant. I had recently purchased this laptop around black friday of 2013. I had done A LOT of research on laptops because I had never owned one and wanted one that would last a long time and had very good reviews.

My Narcoleptic PC

Blue-footed Booby, Amazon
24 April 2015
  • Summary: I bought this product new in 2013 for grad school. From the time I first started using it, the screen flickers randomly, often followed by going to sleep (prompting me to enter my password, etc), as if the PC has narcolepsy, a process that usually occurs once every 10 minutes or so, often with the...

Slow

Amex, Amazon
15 November 2014
  • Summary: Had it for a month before I returned it. It froze approximately every 2 days and was extremely slow at times. I needed it mostly for school but it's way too heavy to carry around all day. The speakers are really loud though, that was cool.

Lenovo G500s Touch Notebook bad hard drives.

Janet H, Amazon
6 October 2014
  • Summary: Do NOT buy this laptop unless you can replace the hard drive. Bought mine in March of 2014 and the hard drive crashed the end of September. This happened during regular use without damaging it in any way. Lenovo told me is will take up to 6 weeks to get it back from being serviced.

a pattern of problems

Student, Amazon
11 August 2014
  • Summary: I had recurring audio problems on the Lenovo desktop that I purchased in 2013, but I assumed it was a fluke and bought this laptop anyway. Now, endless audio problems on both computers, including static sounds, no audio at all, failure to switch to headphones, etc.

  • Summary: I was very pleased with the computer but immediately out of the box the touchpad and mouse buttons did not work.

Components great/Construction terrible

rickem, Amazon
27 January 2014
  • Summary: In terms of what you get inside, the laptop is great. However, the problem is Lenovo's construction of this puts a ton of strain on the hinges. Eventually the laptop will begin to come apart from one side. Want to contact Lenovo? Forget about it. Their one year warranty is the biggest joke.
